Do You Need a Local Emergency Dentist?

A chipped tooth, toothache, or injured jaw can happen to your child unexpectedly. In the event of an emergency, you need to act quickly to find relief for your child.

The kid-friendly dental professionals at Kool Smiles can be reached 24/7 to schedule an emergency visit. In the case of a major emergency, always call 911 immediately.

What Is a Dental Emergency?

Anytime your child feels severe tooth or gum discomfort, has a bleeding wound inside the mouth, or has an injured tooth, you should contact a dentist as soon as possible. If you have a severe emergency, call 911 right away.

Handling a dental emergency is the first step toward safeguarding your child’s teeth and health. There are easy steps to take when:

  • a tooth is damaged or knocked loose
  • your child has a toothache
  • a cavity filling comes out
  • your child is bleeding from the tongue, gums, or lips

Once you have taken these steps to prevent further damage, you need to find a dentist immediately. Because Kool Smiles proudly serves areas without many dental professionals, one of our emergency dentists may be right around the corner.

Why Kool Smiles?

A dental emergency can be scary for both you and your child. You need a dentist who can provide reassurance and fix issues quickly. The family-friendly dentists at Kool Smiles will work to calm your child’s fears, treat their injury, and keep you informed every step along the way.
